Week 7 pocket pages lots of love

Week 7 was a lot of fun! It was valentines Day....awww I love a day of love. I got to see my dad, I got my hair highlighted, it has been years! My fiance`s daughter moved out of state last year and she called me a few weeks ago to surprise him so we have that here as well. Week 7 was fun fun fun and full of LOVE. Since it was so eventful I used two pages this week to tell all of the stories I wanted to share. 


Oh and do you see that weather photo? 60 degrees in February is unheard of here in the midwest!!! that is for sure newsworthy. Don't you fret winter came back in full swing. I am so thankful it is now spring as that is probably my favorite season. Everything is new and fresh.

Winky Face

Sometimes things just come together the right way. When I first got this cute paper I was trying to figure out what I wanted to use it for and then I remembered these photos of my little one learning how to wink. I couldn't believe how perfect it was since the paper even has winks on it! 

I decided to do this style that I have seen many times before it is actually perfect for paper scraps or if you have a lot of 6 x 6 pads of paper around.

I made the embellishments with the Artistry CTMH cartridge and added some quick journaling strips.


I like to do these journaling strips.


Here is a close up of my film strip and my little flags

Pocket Scrapbooking Week 6

This week was a slow week we had the Superbowl (how about that game?) at my moms, some cute grandson photo ops and oh...we bought a new car! So even though it was an exciting week I didn't have a lot of photos so I used this cute alternative size page protector. Something fun, something different and I used some more of those sport theme cards.

Pocket Scrapbooking Week 5

Hello and welcome to week 5 of my life. I am very happy to be staying fairly current in my album so far. I have never made it past the first page when I have tried pocket scrapbooking in the past. Yay me. This week we didn't have to much day to day stuff going on but ended up going out for a pizza/game night and then another night met some friends for cards.

I lost by the way...I don't know how I am very good at spades.



I used cards that I had gotten up at Tuesday Morning a while back. They are actually sport them cards and I just cut them up and made them work.

Week 4 - Pocket Scrapbooking and Organization

So Week 4 features photos of my daughters graduation from the National Guard. We are not really suppose to share where she is at or details so instead of showing you my finished page I thought I would show you a little bit of my process and organization while working on Pocket Scrapbooking

I found a great tracking tool on Pinterest that I love to use when planning my weekly pages. I fill that out and select my pocket page style



Next I cut down photos that I ordered using the collage feature from the Project Life App. That way I can order 4" x 4", 2" x 3" or 2" x 2" photos without the crazy expense of a special size. I just order a 4" x 6" and cut them apart. 


From there I assemble my pages using my PML cards. 

I store my cards in a medium size organizer from CTMH I saw a lot of people storing their cards this way on YouTube and the best part about it, is that it fits in the top of my Raskog Cart from IKEA.  I had originally kept them by color but recently I discovered something about myself that I never new. I scrap much better by collection. So now my cards are sorted by collection and that way everything goes together easy peasy and I don't have to worry about my pinks being a little off from one another.

Oh Deer!

I didn't mean to leave for a few weeks but let me tell you I have been a crafting up a storm so I have some goodies to share with you.

I am working on several things this year as I scrapbook. I am trying to stay current Pocket Scrapbooking and I am working on filling in the gaps in my 2013 album. I also want to finish up my daughters school albums as they both graduated several years ago. One in 2009 (she is up to 5th grade and doesn't have to much going on in middle and high school) and one in 2013 (she is up to 7th grade and she was my active girl) I am happy to say I am current on my little ones school albums. Whoo hoo!!!

I worked on these photos last month for a fun crop over at Sketch-n-Scrap. If you are ever looking for inspiration because you are stuck they have hundreds of sketches for you to start with. This was Sketch 101

Anyway today is not about school albums it is about my 2013 album. When I first started dating my fiance` we used to see deer's everywhere. This is one of our first dates where we ran into several deer on a walk.

Sweet...sugar rush

So I just am in love with our new paper pack Sugar Rush is has my name written all over it with three daughters. I have been playing with it all month and have made so many projects with it that I will be sharing with you.

I know I mentioned how I am doing pocket scrapbooking this year but don't think for a second that I won't be doing a lot of traditional scrapbooking as well. Currently I am working on finishing up 2013 and it has been fun going back and reliving one of the best years of my life to date.

Here is a sweet page about my dad bringing my little one a new bike just because.

This is a great page for using up some scraps. I also used up some of the zip strips on the top of  the Sugar Rush papers. It would also be very easy to adjust this layout and add more photos if you needed to.



Here is a close up of the journaling and some of the embellishment clusters.
